Resilience for Caregivers Course Website
Self-Guided Workshop Description
Offering empathic care to a loved one day in and day out can take a toll physically, emotionally and energetically, and it’s often difficult to find the time to engage in self-care.
In this self-guided workshop, we’ll look at self-care through the lens of the brain and the nervous system, so you can explore resilience through understanding how you’re wired internally and how to build a felt connection to yourself even when things are hard. The class is broken down into one session per week for three weeks, but you are welcome to move at whatever pace is most comfortable for you. Supplemental materials can be found next to the video for each week, and you are welcome to print and use these as you choose.
You’ll finish this course with simple and effective practices that you can use in real time to rewire your nervous system and create new embodied patterns that will make you more resilient in your daily life.
